The Best Movies Leaving HBO Max in June 2021

We’re approaching the halfway point of 2021, and if part of your New Year’s resolution was to watch the 2006 Robin Williams family comedy RV on HBO Max, I’m sad to say that your window to do that is rapidly closing. Here are some of the best movies leaving HBO Max in June 2021, followed by the complete list of films that are vacating the service next month.

The Mask of Zorro

The Mask of Zorro

This movie is sexy, swashbuckling fun the likes of which Hollywood simply does not make anymore. In an industry obsessed with recognizable IP, this film represents the ideal way to relaunch a franchise through an original origin story while incorporating a legacy version of the title character. It’s one of those movies that will have you wondering why popcorn movies aren’t this good anymore.

No Country For Old Men

The Coen Brothers’ 2007 classic is memorable for many reasons – Roger Deakins’ incredible cinematography, launching Javier Bardem to household name status, Tommy Lee Jones’s world-weary performance – and hot damn, it still holds up like a charm all these years later. Josh Brolin is fantastic in the lead role, and the way the Coens ratchet up the tension late in the story and then refuse to give the audience what they want contributes to this being an all-timer.

Margaret (Extended Version)

Kenneth Lonergan famously spent years fighting with the studio over the editing of Margaret, and this extended version is his ideal cut of the project. Anna Paquin is explosive and convincing in the lead role, revealing a teenage state of mind that’s rarely been captured on screen in such a natural way, and the rest of the cast (Mark Ruffalo, Matt Damon, Matthew Broderick, Allison Janney, and more) is aces as well.

Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory Honest Trailer

Everyone should bow before Gene Wilder’s wonderful, sensitive, deranged, and delightfully off-kilter performance in this 1971 classic. I know there are people out there – yes, I’m talking about you, Steve from Akron – who have never bothered catching up with this movie because they missed it during their childhoods, but trust me, there’s plenty for adults to chew on even now.

Big Fish

Personally, I think Big Fish is the perfect synthesis of everything Tim Burton is interested in as a storyteller. He made a really interesting movie a few years ago called Big Eyes that nobody saw, but I think the last truly great thing he made was Big Fish, which came out in 2003. It features some admittedly whimsical visuals, but there’s enough of an emotional punch here to keep it from being written off as a mere exercise in style.
